Grupo Fibrafil, based in the Peruvian capital Lima, is one of the leading Latin-American manufacturers of two agro-industrial products used in greenhouses – sun protection materials and binding twine for tomatoes. The company is now entering the label market and has therefore invested in a Gallus ECS 340 flexographic press.
Grupo Fibrafil, part of Grupo Zaidan, has a workforce of approximately 80 employees at its plant in Peru. Nicolas Zaidan, Sales Manager at Grupo Fibrafil, explains that the large growth potential on the Peruvian label market prompted the company to add label printing to its core business – the production of sun protection materials.
To meet the needs of the Peruvian label market, Grupo Fibrafil chose to buy the highly economical and user-friendly Gallus ECS 340 flexographic press. This press has a technical granite core that ensures very quiet operation and enables easy access to the printing and processing stations. The Gallus ECS 340 is equipped with 8 inking units, a UV drying system, a servo-drive system, front-operated die-cutters and printing cylinder and anilox roller sleeves. It also boasts a very short web path that cuts setup times and waste significantly. According to Nicolas Zaidan, the Gallus ECS 340 will be used at Grupo Fibrafil to produce prime, security and PVC labels with an annual capacity of 2 million square metres.
